Cambridge goes HD on its radio

File this in the better late than never category. Cambridge SoundWorks is finally shipping its tabletop HD Radio, the SoundWorks Radio 820HD. The $365 radio comes in onyx and Arctic white (or, uh, black or white), and includes a remote control, dual alarm clocks, a headphone jack, and an auxiliary input for hooking up an MP3 player.

As for HD Radio, you know the song and dance: Digital radio sound quality is much improved over its analog counterpart, and data such as song title, artist, weather, and traffic can scroll across the radio's screen. Most importantly, HD Radio means that radio stations can squeeze multiple content streams on one frequency (a technology called multicasting), so your favorite classic rock station could also broadcast, say, an all-Elvis channel too. Hey, we know a few people who would dig that.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
